I've had fun doing some traveling this year. Road tripping is one of my favorite fun things to do. But I do have fun just staying home doing things on the internet, watching movies on television, or just hanging out. Gotta have fun sometimes.
Here's Something Fun
Two of my good blogging friends have started a bi-monthly (as in twice a month) event called Battle of the Bands. Usually on the first and the fifteenth of each month, they face off two versions of the same song for readers to vote on to decide which artist made the best recording. They also have a giveaway as a part of the fun. Read more about this event at their sites Far Away Series and Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends. You can track back through their posts to see the two battles that have already taken place. Next battle will actually be posted on August 30th due to Labor Day weekend. Be sure to keep up with the battles to come.
And guess who is going to join them in this. If you guessed me then you'd be right. How can I resist something like this? Me and my passion about music and all. I've got some interesting picks lined up. You may know how obscure I can get. Well, I can promise some picks that are rather out there, but I'll have some mainstream stuff as well. Join me next Friday August 30 to see who will be battling in my first round.
If you want to join in the fun then you can do your own battle on your blog. Please be sure to link to Faraway and Stephen T. McCarthy and Tossing It Out of course. Leave us all a comment to let us know that you've added your own band battle so we can check out your picks. It's all pretty informal and unofficial and all. Kind of a blogfest without a Linky List. And most of all, it's fun! Next Friday!
What do you like to do for fun? What fun things have you been doing this summer? Would you like to match up your own song versions to do battle?
